Is it in veg or flower? Even if it's in flower but not too far you can hook up your spray nozzle and spray upwards from the bottom of the plant and blow the little bastards off. They hang out on new growth and the bottom of the leaves. Repeat everyday until gone.
If it's veg I will also use 70% alcohol. I mix it with water at 50/50 mix with a drop of dishwashing liquid and spray the bottom of the leaves. Mixed at 50% that means the alcohol is only about 35%. Kills the little bastards on contact. I leave it for about 10 min and then I spray of with water with the spray nozzle. Iv have used this method on all kinds of plants.
I had to sprayed again for Aphids and I have a lazy question. With the 50/50 mix why is it important to spray off with water? the alcohol should evaporate as well as the water, is it for the trace of dishwashing fluid? just curious.

Yeah I like making sure the soap gets sprayed off. Besides it washes all the dead bugs and shit off.

Nice looking plants.

Another tool you might want to look at for a comprehensive pesticide herbicide fungicide program is Pyganic.

Two years ago I had an aphid infestation that was apocalyptic and lost a huge crop.

The aphids came back last year but I was ready with the Pyganic. Works fantastic and can be used during flower.

All the best.

Thanks. I don't make rush decisions and no fast moves. I have to see how my plants play out, more rain last two days and cloudy no rain today cloudy today temp in the 70's. Given all that my plants still managed to grow 1.5 " a day. My plants are still in veg and I do plan to spray them wit Dr. Zymes of mites just in case, it wont hurt.
